In addition to the doctor shortage the US is going to have when us Baby-Boomers hit retirement, Obamacare is going to make the problem even worse, based on current trends, how socialized medicine "works" elsewhere, and the government’s own numbers.
In 2005, when the press was enamored with Cindy Sheehan, Chris Matthews suggested she run for Congress. Yeah, how about now? Cue the crickets chirping.
Seal Team Six was an evil, secret, assassination squad manipulated by Dick Cheney. At least, that’s what it was when a Republican was President. Today, under a Democrat, they’re heroes, and not associated with Obama or Biden in the slightest. What a difference a "D" makes.
And speaking of contrasts, we have Nancy Pelosi on bin Laden, then and now.
Michael Barone notes that, to get bin Laden, Obama relied on policies he decried.
You know that kids that had George W. Bush in their classroom on 9/11? This is a good TIME magazine article on what they were thinking at the time when Bush was given the news, and what their reaction is now.
Over half of the country pays no income tax. But "the rich" still don’t pay "their fair share", eh?
While the bin Laden story stole the front page, the Conservatives in Canada won historic victories. Later, the Liberal Democrats in England suffered their worst losses in 30 years.
The conventional wisdom on salt intake may not be right after all.
Civility Watch: "So when does Seal Unit 6, or whatever it’s called, drop in on George Bush?"
A reform to watch: Indiana lawmakers OK broadest voucher plan in US.
It’s so very sci-fi-sounding, but some physicists believe that something from emanating from the sun is now causing radioactive decay to occur faster.
Worst of all, if the decay rates of matter are being mutated then all matter on Earth is being affected including the matter that makes up life.
The mutation may go so far as to change the underlying reality of the quantum universe—and by extrapolation-the nature of life, the principles of physics, perhaps even the uniform flow of time.
In fact, some evidence of time dilation has been gleaned from close observation of the decay rate. If particles interacting with the matter are not the cause—and matter is being affected by a new force of nature-then time itself may be speeding up and there’s no way to stop it.
And finally, a history lesson from Tom McMahon. (Click for the blog entry.)
